Thanks Igor and RejZor for that information, but again... I'm not the one who is impatient  ;D That was RejZor, remember ? He said he can't wait... I'm Ok with the fact that 4.5 is comming out on next Saturday, not tomorrow. I can wait, like always... even better, because now I know we will have enough time to update all those skins in avast! skins download section  ;)

I don't have problems with that thread any more. Since someone (I guess it was Igor) "cleaned" it, everything is OK...

Cheers people !

Thanks Igor... I could not imagine that an antivirus forum was the origin of a virus  :(

Maybe it was someone's intention in the first place...  ??? Who knows what can happen these days... Maybe someone tried to show that avast! actually is spreading viruses or trojans, and it's not that good in fighting against them...

But, I've noticed something wrong with that thread, so I alarmed everyone... better safe than sorry...  ;)

Well, I'd say it was rather scary than dangerous (and I believe it was not an intention). I think that the post contained only pieces of the malware code (not whole). Besides that, it was included as "text" in the page - i.e. there was no danger that the browser would execute the code anyhow.

"Maybe" is the key word. As I said, better safe than sorry, right ?  ;D
